An indoor game that I enjoyed playing was Monopoly, which is a classic board game. It is said that the game of Monopoly is one of the top-selling and best-loved board games in history. In this game, players use Monopoly money to buy and sell real estate and the goal is to bankrupt the other players so as to become the only one remaining with any money.
I played my first game of Monopoly when I was 14 at a friend’s birthday party, The birthday girl Ann was my bestie from secondary school. There were six of us at the party. After eating the cake, opening the presents and things, we decided to play some games to pass the time. Ann suggested that we play a game of Monopoly. At first I was a little uncertain because I had never played it before and it seemed to me that the rules were much too complicated to comprehend, let alone use them to my advantage. But the others promised me that the game was much simpler than it seemed and that they would teach me. So I joined in. It turned out that I made the right decision when I said yes, because Monopoly was so fun. Once I got more familiar with the rules, I could see why the game is so popular. It certainly has lots of charm that can engage people for hours on end.
